The Scottish Glens are great places.
One question though...? Does this album also cover the Dales in the Borders Counties such as Annandale and Moffat Dale etc.
These are both deep cut valleys in the hills.
All the best Stephen,

Had not considered the fact that the areas in the south of Scotland had this name variation. If you want to include them David, that's fine by me. Probably a good theme for a Welsh and English version of this album for someone, with quite a bit of pictures available already.

great idea ! in fact while reading Yatsek's Carpathian article the other day, it came to my mind that such pages could be welcome for other mountain ranges. There is such dictionary with pyrenean dialect, and for Scottish names as well, just like those you listed. A complete list could be a sort of good article !
